Time Machine



Time defines our boundaries — the 24 hour clock is a human invention to rationalise a fourth dimension which cannot be measured by rational measuring units such as length or weight. It is a system that does not account for the elasticity and subjectivity of time.

The world moves fast, I dream of a slower world. I dream of a calmer world, without digital displays staring at me from every side.

The time machine measures time passing in a subjective way. Each person can tailor their measurement of time, adjusting the passing of time to move slower or faster depending on the ratio of weight hung on each side of the pulley system
